Phytochemicals are the individual chemicals from which the plants are made and plants are the key sources of raw material for both pharmaceutical and aromatic industries. the improved methods for higher yield of active compounds will be the major incentive in these industries.
To help those who are involved in the isolation of compounds from plants, some of the essential phytochemical techniques are included in this book.
The theoretical principles of various instruments, handling of samples and interpretation of spectra are given in detail.
Adequate chemical formulas are included to support and explain various structures of compounds and techniques.
The book will prove useful to students, researchers, professionals in the field of Plant Physiology and Pathology, Pharmaceutical and Chemical Engineering, Biotechnology, Medicinal and Aromatic Plants and Horticulture.
